Inktober mandalas part 1

Inktober was started in 2009 by artist Jake Parker, as a challenge to artists to create an ink drawing every day in October. This includes a list of prompts or ideas for each day.

Since then, Inktober-like challenges have arisen in many art forms. This year, I decided to do the challenge in the Facebook group Mandalas for a Season. The group has its own list of prompts, and here are my first 6 mandalas for the challenge. You can follow this challenge on Instagram with the hashtag #inktober2018mandalasforaseason.

Here is my artwork for October 1-6. All were created on my iPad Pro with apps Procreate, iOrnament, iColorama, and Metabrush.
